It’s that time of the year again. Amazon’s latest Prime Day event, Prime Big Deal Days, is now upon us. The exclusive sales event unofficially kicks off the early, early holiday shopping season, and with it comes a cavalcade of deals and discounts. Some are bound to be repeat deals you may have encountered during a random sale, while others are matching their best price to date or dropping even lower.
If you’re in the market for earbuds, headphones, smart home devices, smartwatches, or Android phones, you’re likely to find a worthwhile deal. For each great deal, however, there are likely to be 20-odd trash ones that are crowding the space for your attention. That’s why our team of reviewers and expert deal hunters is working tirelessly to compile the best tech deals that Amazon has to offer on devices and accessories that are actually worthwhile (as well as any counter deals happening elsewhere for non-Prime members looking to save).
Throughout the two-day sales event, we’ll be frequently updating and revising our main roundup of the best Prime Day deals. We’ll continue to add deals as we find them while maintaining roundups focusing on categories like Amazon devices, phones, gaming, and more.
